WOW! I would love to see those in person, Spaw.

He may have been right about not selling your hobby. I had a brilliant jazz musician uncle who opted for a secure job with the government. Hardly ever pursued his music interests after that. He was also a brill woodworker. When he retired he started making exquisite inlaid goods for sale; previously he'd just done a few as gifts. DIdn't make him happy even though he had sheiks from the Middle East and others buying his stuff for thousands of dollars. He committed suicide about 5 years ago.
